How to Build Caravans with Disabled Access

Static caravans are popular as permanent homes and as holiday accommodation and there are many static caravans and holiday homes for sale. It could be said, that most are not best setup for the use of disabled people. Fortunately, it is fairly easy to customise static caravans to allow everyone to use them. There are several areas to consider when it comes to making amendments to a static caravan, but first and foremost it should be remembered that there are as many different requirements as there are people who use static caravans, so any suggestions below are general, and any changes made should be made to the specific requirements of those who will be using the caravan:

– Access ramps, steps and handrails:

The first hurdle faced by people in wheelchairs or with limited mobility is actually getting into static caravans in the first place. Luckily, a long-ramp can easily be fitted to the door of a static caravan for wheelchair users, and those will limited mobility could benefit from the addition of broad, shallow steps to replace the steps that are usually standard on static caravans, which can be steep, and sometimes wobbly, with large gaps between them. Such problems are relatively easily overcome. Good sturdy handrails placed at the right height and in the correct places will further aid safe and easy entry. Why not consider also the addition of a veranda or platform before the door of the static caravan, which will not only make entrance easier for all, but could also provide a pleasant place to sit on sunny days in the fresh air.

– Wider doors and internal access:

Standard doors on a static caravan may be too narrow to allow easy access for wheelchair users or those with crutches or other mobility aids. Wider doors can make it easier for everyone to use static caravans. The considerations of access of adequate width should be continued throughout the static caravan, and doors should all be easy to use by everyone, without any high sills or trip hazards.


– Kitchen and bathroom amendments:

Kitchens and bathrooms can be altered to ensure that they do not pose difficult or dangerous for disabled people. Kitchen work surfaces should be at the correct height for the occupants, and bathrooms should have rails and so on to make them useable, and be large enough for a wheelchair user or person with limited mobility to maneuver without difficulty.

These are just some of the many things which should be considered when kitting out a caravan for those with disabilities.…
